NorthJersey.com | Top 5 Kitchen Designs for Chefs

Laura Adams Stiansen of NorthJersey.com recently ranked the “Top 5 New Jersey Kitchens Designed for a Chef (or chef at heart)” – and we love her list!

Laura’s list of featured designers is a high-class “Who’s Who” of kitchen designers and kitchen design firms. From Peter Salerno Inc. to Ulrich, Kitchen Kaboodle to Anthony Albert Studios and Kuche+Cucina, these design firms (and their kitchen designs) have left both professional chefs and enthusiastic, serious home cooks in awe.

The contractors featured on these designs, in no order, are Kuche+Cucina, Anthony Vero, Ulrich, Jim Van Orden, and Ulrich.

Laura Adams Stiansen’s list of kitchen designs piqued our interest due to its attention to detail and appeal to multiple types of consumers, chefs and families. Her featured kitchen designs include “For a growing family”, “for a rising culinary creator”, and “for the master chef”.

From Laura’s introduction to this article:

Whether your family is growing from four to five or if your new hobby is creating innovative dishes with the ingredients you have on hand — having the right tools in your kitchen is important. Space, shelving and high-end appliances are all pieces that need to fit together to create the perfect kitchen.

The designers of these world-class chef’s kitchen designs were happy to speak regarding their creations.

“The best part of this project was the collaboration with the owners,” Peter Salerno stated to the author. “They are artistic, and were not afraid to go with something edgy. They listened to my ideas and asked how we could bring it up a notch.”

“I feel it’s always best that we get involved before construction begins to be certain all the client’s wants and needs can be met,” Anthony Passanante of Anthony Albert Studios added.

Peter Salerno Named Top Kitchen and Bath Industry Innovator

Kitchen & Bath Design News Names 2017 Top 50 Innovators

It is with great pride that we announce the owner of our parent company, Peter Salerno, as one of the Top 50 Innovators in the kitchen and bath design industry for 2017!

The Top 50 Innovators list, created by Kitchen & Bath Design News, celebrates ingenuity and expertise in the fields of custom kitchen and bath design. This is the inaugural version of the KBDN “The Innovators” list, and it features a veritable “Who’s Who” in the kitchen and bath design industry.

KBDN presents its inaugural list of "The Innovators" in its October 2017 issue.

Peter Salerno owns Peter Salerno Inc., the most award-winning North American custom kitchen and bath design firm of the 21st century. This list of awards includes the KBIS Most Innovative Showroom award, bestowed upon Peter and his firm 2 years ago at the NKBA’s prestigious convention.

“The Innovators” is a list dedicated to dealers, industry leaders and designers in the field of kitchen and bath design. As Kitchen & Bath Design News states rather perfectly in their article:

…[I]n the celebration of design, the very professionals who create those projects and elevate the industry are sometimes overlooked. Yet great design doesn’t exist in a vacuum; the kitchen and bath industry continues to prosper largely due to the efforts of innovators who aren’t afraid to lead the way and chart their own course, whether through design, education, technology, showroom development, community service, new business models or specialty areas that evolve alongside today’s ever-changing consumers.

“I get excited when I see a client who truly wants to do something different and artistic,” Peter Salerno told KBDN in his Innovators interview.

Peter Salerno isn’t alone in this honor, obviously. “The Innovators” inaugural list of 50 is full of industry luminaries – from Rhonda Knoche to Maria Stapperfenne, Bill Feinberg to Alan Zielinski, the amount of talent and forward-thinking leadership featured by KBDN is staggering.

Fall 2017: 201 Magazine Features Gorgeous Kitchen Design Photos

Fall 2017: 201 Magazine Features Gorgeous Kitchen Design Photos

Once again, (201) Magazine sets the bar extraordinarily high with a stunning kitchen design layout.

The latest Home Issue of (201) Magazine (for Fall 2017) features an article titled “For a Rising Culinary Creator”. The photography in the article is courtesy of Peter Rymwid Architectural Photography, and the kitchen was designed by Peter Salerno Inc. of Wyckoff, New Jersey.

The kitchen contractor is Anthony Vero of DiVero Electric and Remodeling in Mahwah, New Jersey.

We love the exposed beams and stone work leading into the kitchen (the photo on the right), with gorgeous archway moulding framing your view into the modern kitchen design. Peter Rymwid’s expert photography of the Peter Salerno Inc. design perfectly captures the custom range hood fixture over the kitchen island that serves as the focal point of the kitchen design.

Once inside the kitchen, the “wishbone” design of the island seating really captures the imagination. As with much 2017 transitional design, neutrals and whites act as the featured color palette of the design. The crisp white of the chairs and custom Maestro Rosolino cabinetry.

We also love the oversized exposed spice rack on the wall, and the beautiful La Cornue rotisserie wall feature that’s mounted several feet from it.

Other featured appliances come from Wolf, Sub-Zero, Miele, and U-Line (the wine refrigerators).

“The best part of the project was the collaboration with the owners,” Peter Salerno told (201) Magazine in the article. “They are artistic, and were not afraid to go with something edgy.”

The flow from the backsplash to the base of the kitchen island to the flooring really ties this beautiful kitchen design together.

Peter Salerno Inc.: “The Face of The Ultimate Kitchen”

Peter Salerno Inc.: “The Face of The Ultimate Kitchen”

Bergen Magazine recently named Peter Salerno Inc. the “face of the ultimate kitchen”.

The article, part of the “Faces of Bergen 2017” series, focuses on the foremost names, faces and places in one of the most notable areas of America. Bergen County is located in northeast New Jersey, a short trip over the George Washington Bridge from New York City and Manhattan.

An excerpt from the article, “The Face of The Ultimate Kitchen”:

Following in the footsteps of his father, Peter [Salerno] developed a profound interest in the craft, becoming an elite Certified Master Kitchen and Bath Designer (CMKBD). Together with his wife, Tracy, and their children, Anthony and Gabrielle, this third generation family venture is recognized as one of the top design firms in the country and is the recipient of 35 national accolades.

The kitchen is one of the most important rooms of a home. Peter Salerno and Peter Salerno Inc. are the leaders in kitchen design because all of its designers are required to learn to cook or bake on a serious level. Peter and his son Anthony both take numerous classes at the Culinary Institute of America each year.

It’s not just focusing on the big picture, the little details matter just as much. To fill in these gaps that most other companies have, the company carries a premium selection of hardware and faucets with which to accessorize your kitchen. Peter’s daughter, Gabrielle, can help you pick out all your hardware needs.

Peter Salerno Inc.’s flagship showroom and offices are located at 511 Goffle Road, Wyckoff, New Jersey – in the heart of Bergen County, new Jersey. Its new satellite showroom is located at 5 West Main Street, Mendham, New Jersey.
